Proposed Minneapolis sick-leave ordinance draws emotional testimony at City Hall

 


A restaurant worker who lost his job — and then his car and his home — after suffering an injury and missing a shift pleaded with Minneapolis City Council members Wednesday to take a stand for low-wage workers by mandating paid sick leave for nearly all workers.

A restaurant owner, who said she works a second job to make ends meet, urged the council to vote against such an ordinance, warning that it would drive up costs and force small businesses to close.
